he's a great football player. >> mike: and looking to close the e gap on current points lear jimmie johnson. nascar's best head to the short track on the c circuit. the sprint cup continues in martinsville. coverage begins on abc at 1:00, 10 a.m. pacific. for more infmation logon to espn.com. >> craig: now, the oregon ststa offense, 22 yards on the night. we just showed you the graphic, and how many yards oregon state has averaged against the usc defense. 400 yards plus. everybody else in the 227 range. and quizz rodgers, remember, mike, he didn't even play the second quarter with that banged up ankle. >> mike: that's right. 5:41 to go in the game. oregon state down by six.
42-36. mcneal from the 9. covering up that football. driven out of bounds to the 27 yard line. check in with heather. >> heather: well, the usc offense will take the field without the services of senior tight end anthony mccoy being treated for i right ankle injury. came off the field. about six doctors addressed him. he got off the field, got on the ground and couldn't put any pressure on that right foot. he's icing it and done for the night. >> mike: big loss for them, 6'5", 252. hopefully, he'll be all right and be able to play next week. mcknight is back in at tailback. gets maybe a yard before he is swallowed up.
by that oregon state defense. >> craig: so the question really becomes in this game, if you're usc and pete carroll, do you throw the ball? do you protect matt barkley? many times you've seen it, football teams get cautious, you get cautious to the point you lose a football game. you've got to execute. you can't afford to give the ball back to sean canfield and oregon state's offense and not expect him to have a shot at beating them. >> mike: no, not with what they've shown. they're going to use every second they possibly can. complete pass, about a yard shy. maybe two, of the first down. johnson makes the catch. number seven, usc, on top by only six. as we approach the 4:30 mark in this ball game.
and this is a huge play. third and two for usc. what do you call here? >> craig: well, if you had anthony mccoy, your great tight end in the ball game, you'd have a short outlet for yourself, right? he's on the sideline. and they've had great success running the ball. i wouldn't be surprised if they just got there and ran it. >> mike: and the mark is right at the sticks. you see the yellow line. t is remarkably accurate. and if the ball is spotted past that, as it is, they will call the sticks. but looks like a first down. >> craig: now, bradford on the night, he's had a heck of a game running the football. he's taken the pressure off of barkley. he's opened up that passing game for matt barkley. this is a good offense. they've got the balance that you're looking for. they've gone against an offense,
they've had to go back and forth. >> mike: this is the most points usc has allowed at home since 2005, when fresno got 42. >> craig: i've got a question for you, mike. how impressive was the cincinnati victory at oregon state? >> mike: huge. huge. i think cincinnati's a heck of a ball club. >> craig: absolutely. now, pitt is coming on strong in the big east. they've rocked today over south florida. >> mike: just crushed them. >> craig: crushed them. thousand, dave wannstedt's football team, they're making a statement. that's going to be a heck of a game down the road. west virginia hung on to beat a spirited uconn team today. >> mike: yes, that did. bradford. and hat its off to the mountains fans. they gave a huge ovation to the
connecticut players had they took the field today. i would expect nothing else from the bill stewart coached team. the man is just one of the classiest individuals i've ever known. >> craig: genuine, too. he's not just doing it to be politically cool. bill stewart's just a good man. >> mike: clock continues to wind down. oregon state can only stop it once. boy, there's no fear in this play calling. he just comes out and fired to damian williams. barkley right on target. and this will set up another huge third down. >> craig: you're asking so much out of your secondary to cover damian williams with really no help deep. and you're putting pressure with your inside guys. williams, that's pitch and catch. he's got the big body. he shields the corner. you just can't expect that to be stopped. >> mike: that's for sure. every second that ticks off
diminishes oregon state's chances. and usc gets a first down here, it's close to being over. >> referee: time-out. >> mike: now, the trojans are going to use the time-out. >> referee: time-out number two. 30-second time-out. >> mike: pete carroll wants to get his best play to get a first down and maybe salt this one away. let's go to heather. >> heather: it's been fascinating watching the dynamic in the game between quarterback matt barkley and jeremy bates. it's like helping jay cutler make the pro bowl. the two are inseparable. you can just tell by looking in matt's eyes where he's headed. you can feel the strength that matt's getting down here. bates is no stranger to quarterbacks, guys, he played quarterback at tennessee with none other than peyton manning.
>> mike: you know, heather, some teams don't have quarterback coaches. if you talk to quarterbacks, they'll tell you, they need one. they need one that's like a father to say, i messed this one. what can i do? very important. >> craig: and apparently very smart to handle anything strategically. blitz, on the outside. he knows he's got damian williams one-on-one. that's pitch and catch. find your great receiver. >> mike: this could be a ball game right here. two tight ends. barkley. complete pass. first down. damian williams, that 6'1" target. and a perfect throw for barkley and a first down. >> craig: you lose your great tight end, anthony mccoy. you have to have a presence on the inside. so, again, setting the play up. rolling the pocket away from the
pressure. just on the left side of your screen, and you're going to see dame yn williams replacing basically what a tight end would do, right, mike? >> mike: absolutely. >> craig: it's just great smart play calling. >> mike: and the linebacker keaton kristick had the great coverage. bradford down to the 45. play clock goes to 40. and just they'll lose every second of it. and oregon state, again, can only stop it once. >> craig: mike riley and oregon state will look back to the first half. missed opportunities. they had the fumble. their first fumble they have turn over this season, which is rare, nobody else in the country does that. james rodgers fumbled. they went in to score. eyeyadaderceceptated quark.k.hit t onhehe inbouounds.as p pys..ikik usc'
th dplaylo will if brad, nice j job. ar srtrt play.ks tn whwhil let thock be y your iend c c is g gngng t to es atho >> crara: you u uerstand y mymh for oregon state coming down? >> mike: you were absolutely right. they included themselves beautifully tonight. >> craig: and we're seeing again that pete carroll has replaced steve sarkisian with jeremy bates, john morton over there. his coaching staff just a heck of a coaching staff and a very talented football team. >> mike: and this is your first look at matt barkley, you are obviously looking at not only the future of this program, but the presence of this program.
this kid is just a sensational player. >> craig: ll, i'd like to close out the night with anote to the computers around the country. please don't disrespect the usc victory at ohio state and notre dame. >> mike: you hear that, all you computers? you hear that? it's a message from craig to all the motherboards out there. >> craig: there you go, here's a virus for you. >> mike: pete carroll, mike riley, guys with all the respect for each other. some performance. final score, usc, 42, oregon state, 36. we'll go back to new york. matt winer for the ford wrap-up. good one in l.a. welcome to the ford wrap-up. texas and missouri, the longhorns were impressive. mccoy was nearly perfect against
the tigers. 26 of 31 with three touchdowns and a blowout win. for more, john saunders and jesse palmer. thanks a lot, guys. welcome to the ford wrap-up. john saunders alongside jesse palmer. big question in everybody's minds coming into college football every week. who's the best team truly in college football, who's number one? florida holds the crown right now, but do they deserve it? tim tebow, the snap is high. takes the pitch and runs it in, 26 yards for a touchdown. >> it's tim tebow's 39th career running touchdown. that ties him with herschel walker. >> and chris freeney, 88-yard touchdown run. they win it by 10. alabama facing tennessee. this field goal. daniel lincoln, if he can knock it through will win the game for tennessee but it's blocked by
terrence cody, the second one he blocks in the game. alabama survives on four field goals, no touchdowns. so is alabama the best team? is florida the best team? or are either of them the best team? >> that's the question, john. to me, florida and alabama are enigmas right now. are either number one? they both run the football and run the football but neither the greatest. tim tebow throws two pick sixes. there needs to be balance for the two teams. we watched colt mccoy light up early throwing the football. texas right now to me looks to be the most balanced of the three. >> they score 35 in the first half. a big finish in the big ten. iowa coming in unbean. looked like they were going to lose to michigan state. stanzi to mcnutt, he hangs on for the touchdown, and iowa
pulls this one out, 15-13, they go to 8-0 on the season. stanzi, 137 yards, but that key touchdown. >> iowa are the cardiac kids. how about this, they do this each and every week. it doesn't matter who they're playing. northern iowa, arkansas state, michigan, penn state, michigan state, they always seem to have just enough gas left in the tank to get it done. congratulations to iowa. the first time in school history to start 8-0. >> they own their own destiny, by the way, if they want to win the big ten. they're the only team without a loss. of course, we see you again next week. this has been the ford wrap-up. ecoboost™ engine in the all-new taurus sho from ford. that has the thirst of a v6 with the thrust of a v8. we speak car. we speak innovion.
